ever seen a saleen svt focus??

has anyone ever seen a saleen svt focus? this was supposed to be available from saleen, for special order. I was just wondering if anyone has ever seen one. The cost was about $30k. if there are any they would have to be extremely rare.

So, you are getting a overpriced SVT with a body kit?

I am afraid it is not just a body kit. You must have it confused with the Roush. First, anyone that knows saleen understands the suspension is one of the best in the world. Second, the svt does not come with cold air induction, and of course NOS. Third, I really find my MOMO seats extremely comfortable. Fourth, the body kit makes it stand out a lot more than the svt, which looks like a regular focus from a distance. Lastly, yes it says Saleen on the front window.

I still wouldnt spend all the extra money for:
1) The saleen suspension, because there ARE others out there who have better ones
2) COld Air induction only gives you like 4 whp and i got that for $260 plus the saleen comes with nitrous hookups and if you run nitrous the warranty is void
3) Seats are comfy but you can buy em and install em for alot less than the saleen
4) IMO the saleen wing looks ghey and the body kit is not in my taste at all.

Mayber for the extra thousands of dollars they should have actually made the car faster instead of just making it look nice and putting Saleen on everything. Not that i am ripping on your car its just i would rather spend money on performance over body kits and seats.

I'm with frogg. I'd much rather make it myself with nice parts for cheaper.

Hey, I think in the end if whatever rocks your boat.If you have the money and dont want to fuzz with doing all the mods yourself, hey the saleen is a cool way to go.Besides is limited edition. However,if you rather do the work (for economic or bragging rights reason) hey more power to you......But here is my point........

The thing is tho....there are really no great "mods" to it. I mean ITs a nitrous kit without a bottle that under warranty you cant use, a big body kit, seats, an intake and center exhaust to tons o money. I mean even if "YOU" dont do the work and pay to get em done, you can have a nicer car than that one for less. And as far as limited edition goes. There are millions of so called limited edition things in the world. The only ones worth the extra cash are the ones that are that much better than a original. And imo this is not a great l.e. item.

Nitrous without a bottle?

All it's missing to be "hooked up" is relays and switches, ~$30

Atleast get your facts straight man, check out my site and tell me it didn't come with a bottle.

And limited edition does hold its value more. Depending on how many "limited were made"

Not like "Number 1126 of 8000". To me that's not very limited.

Now, the Saleen rep told me only 90 N2O's were made. That seems a little low so I plan on calling Saleen today. I'll let you know.

And to Egz and BONOMAN. - As far as "doing the work yourself" I totally agree with you. But I believe that only applies to people with a Saleen/other fixed up models if they plan on not doing anything. There are tons and tons more things to do to the car. We just got to fast forward a little bit.
